tSchemaComplianceChecker - Validate Null Date

Can somebody confirm if the 2417 addresses validating a null date column from a tFileInputPositional?
Currently I cannot read in a blank column defined as a string and check for compliance using another schema where the column is defined as a date and is nullable (see attached screenshot). The record will always be rejected since the column is always converted to a date regardless of the nullable flag.

Hi
About 2417, We are handling it.
The record will always be rejected since the column is always converted to a date regardless of the nullable flag.

You can't use a date pattern"dd-MM-yyyy" to check an null String, so it will be rejected.
Best regards

It will be great when the bug fix is release however it currently is set to low priority. What does this mean in regards to the the release date?
My workaround right now is to fill in blank dates columns with a dummy data (e.g. 19000101) and then strip out the dates after the schema compliance check. Not very pretty when you have many dates in many different files.
